Just seen this mention of the Algomech festival this weekend: Live coding
music in Python sounds interesting... also WyPy on Thursday with this theme,
see further down.

I'm sure this will get mentioned on Thursday but for people who can't make
wypy (myself included sadly, it looks great), all sorts of interesting
art-music-software-hardware stuff in Sheffield over the weekend:

Strangely I have been looking at FoxDot very recently. I may have
mentioned that I would love to have a talk on computational music. A
colleague at work mentioned that he was playing with FoxDot so I might
see if he is interested in building up his knowledge enough to do some
kind of session at Python Sheffield.

Not sure whether I will be able to make it to WyPy tonight, however much
I want to...

Cheers,
Gary
